Flashing handguns and a sawed-off shotgun at employees, three robbers looted the office safe and cash register from the Francis Street Bargain Town store Monday night, according to a Columbus Police report.

The armed thieves escaped with their haul after holding two employees and a customer at gunpoint at about 9 p.m.

The first suspect was described as a 6-foot to 6-foot-2 black man. Armed with a silver pistol, he was wearing a white shirt over his head, a black sweat shirt and grey pants.

The next suspect was described as a 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 black with a medium build. He carried the shotgun, and wore a black bomber jacket with fur on the hood with blue jeans.

The last suspect, described as a skinny 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-6 black man with a light complexion, was wearing a white nylon jacket with a grey hood and black cargo pants.

Anyone with additional information about this incident should call Investigative Services at 706-653-3400.
